'First published 25 years ago,this new edition is substantially rewritten and includes an additional chapter on the significant discoveries now being made on the wrecks.  There are new photographs, and the book is presented in a handsome larger format.  Written by the discoverer and excavator of the Mary Rose, and historian who has spent most of his life on the South Coast and is therefore well able to understand the eccentricities of wind and current that Drake and Hawkyns used to such good effect, this fresh and lively approach to a crucial event in our history remains an outstanding contribution to the study of naval warfare.'
